Salad Ingredients

1 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half

I large Lebanese cucumber

1 large yellow capsicum

½ cup pitted kalamata olives, cut in half

2 cups baby cos

½ Spanish onion, sliced

Sesame seeds

Greek salad dressing (store-bought or homemade)

2 large chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise

Chicken Marinade Ingredients

1/3 cup Greek yoghurt

¼ cup olive oil

1 lemon

4 cloves, minced garlic

2 tbsp fresh or dried oregano

1 tbsp smoked paprika

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

Method

Place yoghurt and oil in a bowl. Add the zest of the lemon, before juicing and adding to the bowl. Add the remaining marinade ingredients and stir.

In a separate bowl, place the chicken and half the marinade and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. While your chicken is marinading, prepare your salad.

Once the chicken breasts are marinaded, grill on a medium heat. Don’t forget to lightly oil your grill pan.

Use the remaining marinade to baste your chicken while you grill. Cook for approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Take off heat and allow to rest for five minutes, before cutting into slices.

Portion out your salad, add salad dressing to taste, place the grilled chicken pieces on top and lightly sprinkle sesame seeds as a finishing touch.
